Oh man he and the band were ridiculous. Same thing a couple months later. In mid-December at Winterland. Man sure trusted his fans. I got to see Santa Claus Is Coming To Town. :) Greatest rock band ever imho.

What a great showman. I think he is one of the plainest of songwriters with Merle and Townes and Guy, some others. Having said that some of his songs formed a odd mythology of characters and scenes peculiar to a Jersey boy.
Here is the next night show.
